When traveling to a foreign country you may find it’s difficult to understand the language, there aren’t any familiar faces, people are dressed differently, your surroundings are unfamiliar, you’re not sleeping in your own bed, and on and on and on. This can be very stressful.
Being in a hospital or skilled nursing facility can be very much like this. We are all very vulnerable when our health has been compromised. How can you possibly be expected to learn about this new culture when your health and well being are at stake?
PSA understands this culture, we speak the language, and we know your rights as a patient. Your Advocate will make sure you know what to expect along the way, answering your questions, minimizing unpleasant surprises and helping you understand the overwhelming amount of paperwork that will require your signature – allowing you to focus on your recovery.
